A puzzlement

"There are times I almost think
I am not sure of what I absolutely know."
(King & I)

A puzzle's a puzzle as everyone knows
A landscape, a mountain, a river that flows
Oceans of blue, or meadows of green
Hundreds of pieces that have to be seen
It takes a whole table to lay out the piles
Of curious pieces of various styles
You ponder and peer `til the pieces are placed
Except two or three of the ones you've misplaced
When you tear out your hair and hope for the day
That someone invents a much simpler way
To challenge your brain cells without all the woes
`cos a puzzle's a puzzle as everyone knows


Up stepped the makers of this puzzle game
And fixing up jigsaws just won't be the same
No need for a table, no pieces to lose
You make them as easy or hard as you choose
Set them up simple for kids who're in training
Or horribly hard for the days when it's raining
And although a million is not quite correct
There's really no reason for you to object
It lets you upload your own pictures you see
Which is awesomely clever, I think you'll agree
Choose your piece thickness and choose your piece style
And make cool wallpaper from your jigsawed smile



Pros:
1. No pieces no lose, no tables to commandeer
2. You sort your pieces in "trays" just like you would do on a table. You can have as many trays as you like.
3. No threat of someone messing it up when you're not around. You can save your puzzle and go back to it later.
4. You can set the level of difficulty to suit your mood. There are four levels of difficulty.
5. It even plays music while you work (you can turn it off)
6. Fun for the whole family (unless you upload x-rated photos)

Cons:
1. It's not quite as good as the real thing, but it comes close.
2. When you've played the easy stages with the pieces the right way up and a background image to guide you, it's hard to make yourself graduate to the hard stuff.
3. You can't experience the sweet sensation of finding mistakes, because once a piece is in the right vicinity it jumps gleefully into place, and can't be dislodged. Not sure if you can turn this off, but I'm going to see if I can.
4. There are several categories of puzzle themes, and you need to load each section individually. This is a bit of a pain, as you have to close all IE or Firefox applications to do it.

Recommended for puzzle lovers who are short on puzzle-fixing space, and people who'd like to be able to do puzzles on a laptop while commuting. A great way to utilise some spare time.
